2018 Reserve Shiraz
The Lake House 2018 Premium Reserve Frankland River Shiraz bouquet reveals rich dark fruits, mocha and liquorice, complemented by toasted oak with notes of pepper and spice.
Initial flavours of black cherry and blackcurrant lead to a rich complex mid-palate of liquorice and dark chocolate and subtle spiced savoury notes. Finishes with long fine tannins and toasty spice and vanilla of premium French and American oak. A fragrant, rich and complex example of Frankland River Shiraz.
Our tasting notes: One of my favourite Shiraz's. It's more bold than its sister in the Postcard series. A lot of fruit density with a very long finish. There is a peppery, earthy element in the 2018 vintage.
